Farmers fill their wooden boats with harvested water lilies which are later sold at a market. Hundreds of workers spend all day in the water harvesting the flowers, loading them on to the boats to take back to their farm.

They are then distributed to market to be sold. The water lilies is found in almost every body of water in Bangladesh, and the long stalks are used in vegetable curry in the country. Photographer Azim Khan Ronnie photographed the harvest in Mushiganj, Bangladesh.
